Hi There,

How can one find the location of duplicated clips on a timeline?

In FCP there used be a menu that would list the time-codes of all instances of the duped clips.


Thanks,


Wayne

Go to the Project window in icon view,

Click on the blue video or audio icon in the thumbnail,

Then click on one of the options.

You can do this also in List view.

open preview area,

click on the little arrow down (clip usage)

Hi Wayne,

another way is to mark "show duplicate frame markers" in timeline-display-settings (screw-wrench):

The colored areas are twice in TL....

Here's my current workflow for finding duplicates that's easier than skimming the whole sequence for duplicate frame markers or looking at video/audio usage (and also works for stills).

1) Export sequence as XML. I'd recommend if you're only looking for visual duplicates, delete all audio tracks first; if only looking for stills, delete all but that, etc.

2) Use Sequence Clip Reporter to generate a spreadsheet of all the clips in the sequence ($99 but 100% worth it if you have ever had to turn an EDL into a spreadsheet more than once... also, I encountered a bug that caused it not to work, and customer support got back to me right away... on 4th of July!!): http://intelligentassistance.com/premiere-pro.html 

3) Use Excel or Google Sheets to create a Pivot Table from the spreadsheet. (Select nothing: generate pivot table, make sure your whole data range is included, choose rows: Clip Name, Values: Clip Name)

4) The Pivot Table will show you a count of how many times the Clip Name shows up in the table. So find duplicates via anything more than one, and the original spreadsheet will show you the timecodes for where it is located in the sequence!

Jogan you're brilliant!  This was exactly the answer I was looking for.  It worked like a charm.  I discovered I had duplicate sound bytes in my sequence audio - which is what I suspected, but I didn't want to listen to the whole half-hour program to find it.  Thank you!

Thanks Ann,

I appreciate your showing me the workflow.

I have to say, Premiere Pro has a VERY poor implementation of this very important tool, and is lightyears

behind FCP's clearer and more obvious implementation.

I hope this fix this.

FCP 7 really was great about dupe detection. But FCPX is lightyears behind Premiere pro when the question is dupe detection. It just have nothing to deal with dupes, and I guess that Apple think it is a minor and superfluous need. Sad.
